Thanks for the link. I am really glad they did this restoration and hope the building remains there for a long time.

Here is a link to another article about the restoration.  It is very interesting how they took steps to keep the original design.

Floyd and Ruth Schmoe spent a winter as caretakers at Paradise Inn in 1920.  Floyd Schmoe was the first naturalist at Mt. Rainier National Park.

Reststep, have you read Floyd Schmoe’s book A Year in Paradise? It is about when Floyd and Ruth wintered over in the Inn in 1920.

I have the book but it has been several years since I read it.  I should read it again.

Floyd Schmoe had an interesting life. He lived the entire 20th century.  Born in 1895 and died in 2001
